    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   Networked audio has been around since the late 20th century. However, that’s like saying rail travel has been in place for 200 years. There’s a big experiential difference between climbing aboard a mid-century diesel on the LIRR (Long Island Rail Road) to Patchogue and taking the Acela from Boston to D.C. Both will get you between points on a map but the latter will do it faster, more efficiently and more effectively.… View this post

    professional audio

    When I was getting stated in this business, I had some excellent mentors along the way. One of the things they taught me was to be prepared with a set of tools and the knowledge to use them properly. While organizing the U.S. Air Force Band Sound Workshop (an annual event for military sound engineers) during the 1990s, I passed along this information to the budding audio people, many of whom were musicians transitioning to sound for a variety of… View this post

    When mixing live church praise and worship bands, or any other band for that matter, it’s the seasoned, tasteful and professional musicians that always make the sound tech’s job easy and rewarding. Their musical talents can enhance the entire worship set and they can make the sound tech’s craft really look good to boot! A capable church musician who plays with feeling, self-awareness and controlled dynamics, not only enhances the worship experience for the entire church but also makes the… View this post

    ProSoundWeb presents at least two feature articles every day of the working week, meaning that there are 40-plus long-form articles highlighted each and every month. That’s a lot. In fact, so much so that we thought it would be handy to present a round-up of the most-read articles for those who might have missed at least some of them the first time around. What follows is the top 5 most-read articles on PSW for the month of June 2016. Note… View this post

    When the second edition of RH Consulting’s Guide to Voice Alarm Systems was published recently (joint authored by eminent pro audio consultants Roland Hemming and Richard Northwood, in e-book format), Powersoft was quick to respond. The Italian amplifier authority instantly saw that this could be adapted to provide its own customers with a bespoke version as an educational tool, offering specific information about deploying Powersoft products for emergency applications. They were soon in contact with RH Consulting with the result… View this post

    church sound
    Kent Morris 06/27/16 11:39 AM,
    According to an old axiom, “Everyone knows two things: their job and sound.” In other words, every audience member is an audio expert. Therefore, it is difficult to deliver a “good” mix since what is proper tonal and level balance to one person is inappropriate to another. A healthy relationship between the front of house engineer and the audience rests on the engineer’s ability to provide a mix acceptable to a plurality of the listeners’ ears. To achieve success, the… View this post

    Being the online forum lurker that I sometimes am, there are times when I’m struck by a pattern or trend that was never clear before (for whatever reason). It happened just a while ago, and the context is relevant to what we do in our business of live sound. This particular discussion, on a music forum, was a thread about “the great tone we’ve spent years perfecting that is destroyed when it goes through a PA.” (You guessed it –… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Editor’s Note: This story originally ran in December 2010, but the information is still very relevant and worthy of repeating. This week is production week for us at Coast Hills. And it’s quite a production; Gunch! is an (almost) all-original musical-style stage play with an 80+ member cast, 13 person pit band and five performances over the weekend with an expected attendance of 4500+. It’s quite an undertaking. This past Friday was opening… View this post

    As the use of wireless systems continues to grow and the available wireless spectrum continues to shrink, the need for someone to coordinate all of that wireless on any given event becomes greater. It’s why you’re increasingly likely to encounter a frequency coordinator on a show or tour. With this in mind, and as a frequency coordinator, I’ve come up with a list of frequently asked questions about what I do. What is a frequency coordinator? A person (or team… View this post
